Large Message Sizes with Performance Tests

I am trying to use Performance Tests to benchmark RTI with large message sizes. I have looked at a few posts to the knowledebase about this:


Can these XML elements shown in the above posts be added to the perftest_qos_profiles.xml file?  I am looking at message sizes greater than 10 Mbits and need to have reliable transport. Does Performance Test support message sizes greater than 63000 bits?

Hi Joseph,

RTI Perftest allows you to test large data. RTI Perftest will automatically configure certain RTI Connext DDS behaviors:

  • Unbounded-sequences
  • Asynchronous Publisher and flowController.

Using large data is recommended:

  • Using the parameter -sendQueueSize <number>: to a low value.
  • Using a flow controller -flowController <default,1Gbps,10Gbps>: RTI Perftest provides options to use a flow controller designed for a 10Gbps network or a 1Gbps one or default.

In regard to your request, you can run the following commands:

  • Publisher:
bin/<architecture>/<release or debug>/perftest_cpp -pub -dataLen 1000000 -sendQueueSize 1 -flowController 1Gbps
  • Subscriber:
  bin/<architecture>/<release or debug>/perftest_cpp -sub -dataLen 1000000

Let me know if it works for you.
